Ombre

One of the very first things I pinned on Pinterest was this awesome ombre dresser:



It served as the inspiration for my other St George project last week.  I took two Ikea Rast Dressers and with a bit of paint turned them from this:

To this:

I've been pushing myself lately to start doing something with the things I pin - turning the inspiration into actual projects.  It feels good knowing that all the time I'm investing pinning is actually paying off.

Have you turned your pins into projects yet?  Or are you still holding out on Pinterest?

I've been digging the new Dawes album, their song "Time Spent in Los Angles" has been on heavy rotation. Pin It

That turned out great - good of you to get it done (I´m frustrated myself about that right now)! Well, let´s just say that I have more things on my to do-list than on the finished-list..! :-D

I love what you did with that bedside dresser. The 3 colors are great together. I've not dipped into pininterest...I should. Right now I'm having a hard time keeping up with my blog-too much damn work! 6-7 days a week is too much.
Your ability to complete projects AND blog AND pininterest is amazing.

I'm a hold out. But I'm not sure why anymore - something to do with trying to reduce the amount of time I spend online. But I keep seeing people post things they've been inspired by and then carried out and I wonder why I'm holding out.

Such a great project! (what kind of paint did you use, out of curiousity? - latex, oil?)

Great job on the dresser...I love monochromatic color schemes...so soothing to me. I do scrapbook layouts that way at times; for fun.

Anika said...

You're very crafty! Looks great. And thanks, now I am in love with a dresser...that Ombre is so so pretty.

Love the way your project turned out, love those colors. I had made a pact with myself to do one of my inspiration pin projects per week. I'm behind . . .

Cindy said...

Karen said...

Your dresser is wonderful. I'm just getting started with Pinterest, but I do think I'll use some of what I've pinned in future projects.
